Raleigh, NC Americana band, New Reveille, who recently signed a label and management deal with Loud & Proud Records, have launched their PledgeMusic store today where fans can pre-order their debut album. Exclusive items are also available including signed vinyl test pressings, hand-written lyrics, instruments, unique experiences such as Skype cello or violin lessons, an acoustic house concert, and more. All pledgers will get an instant track download of an early recording of the song, “Miracle.”
Yesterday, the band premiered their first “Living Room Sessions” video for “Miracle” with Americana blog, Mother Church Pew who said, “These days, having a banjo in your band doesn’t make you Americana. All the elements have to be in place—stellar songwriting, outstanding musicianship, creative innovation, and a unique ability to connect with those who listen. Raleigh, North Carolina-based Americountry outfit New Reveille has it all, banjo included… With sweetly-rendered multi-part harmonies, yearning string arrangements, and lyrical depth, ‘Miracle’ gives us a glimpse of the raw talent and stripped down beauty New Reveille possesses.” Watch it below and on their PledgeMusic page now.
Nashville based Producer / Engineer Ben Fowler, a Multi-Platinum, Grammy Award winning, ACM Engineer of the Year nominee, has signed on to produce their debut Loud & Proud Records release. Fowler most recently has made albums with Jerrod Niemann, Sarah Evans, Lucy Hale, Kip Moore, Rascal Flatts, and Ruby Amanfu to name a few. In the past, he’s worked with Eric Clapton, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and George Harrison, among others. “I’m incredibly excited about working with New Reveille,” says Ben Fowler. “They have a depth to their sound vocally and instrumentally that is uniquely their own, and I look forward to getting in the studio with them.” Singer Amy Kamm adds, “we are inspired by the opportunity to tell our stories through our songs, both in the studio recording our new album and on the road performing for fans. We’ve prepared for this moment, and 2018 is the time for New Reveille to take a major step forward.”
New Reveille, Amy Kamm (lead vocalist), Daniel Cook (banjo / guitar), George Hage (lead guitar), Kaitlin Grady (cello), and Autumn Brand (violin), self-released their debut album, Cannonball in 2013. They sold out their very first show at Deep South The Bar and soon were playing to standing room only crowds with their powerfully crafted songs, incredible showmanship, and eclectic live shows. They also won the prestigious American Advertising Gold Addy award for their “Babylon” video (155,000 views on YouTube) which Daniel Cook wrote and directed.
The band name, New Reveille, a tribute to Cook’s military grandfather who played reveille in the mornings, could also mean a “new awakening,” which is how the band members view their signing to Loud & Proud Records, and what it means for their future.
